Blossoms Have Arrived

Blossoms Have Arrived

The end of August is one of my favourite times of year, particularly in the suburb I live in. While it’s still classified as Winter here in Melbourne, I start to see signs of early Spring. The Golden Wattle tree is one of the first to burst into colour. You can see the bright splash…

Road Works Ahead

Road Works Ahead

I don’t really love being in the car. Driving is really just a process of getting from A to B for me. Maybe it was all the long drives through the countryside that I endured growing up. Being car sick half the time certainly didn’t help my enthusiasm. But even still today, my car is…

They are involved in our children’s ministry on a Sunday morning but it was felt they needed a little extra guidance in how to deal with our preschool children. We were all gathering together before the training started and I got…

Elephant Formation

Elephant Formation

In the wild, when a mama elephant is giving birth, all the other female elephants in the herd back around her in formation. They close ranks so the delivering mama cannot even be seen in the middle. They stomp and kick up dirt and soil to throw attackers off the scent. They surround the mama…

Weighing Up The Cost

Weighing Up The Cost

Camps can be some of the best times of a child’s life. I grew up attending Christian camps and, coming from a very small church, this really helped develop my faith. I’ve recently been sitting down with one of our church leaders to help her organise a camp for some of the kids in our…
